Reviews

  • "A vital book about dying. Awe-inspiring and exquisite. Obligatory reading for the living."

    Nigella Lawson
  • "Rattling. Heartbreaking. Beautiful."

    Atul Gawande, author of BEING MORTAL
  • "A great, indelible book ... as intimate and illuminating as Atul Gawande’s “Being Mortal,” to cite only one recent example of a doctor’s book that has had exceptionally wide appeal ... I guarantee that finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option ... gripping from the start ... None of it is maudlin. Nothing is exaggerated. As he wrote to a friend: “It’s just tragic enough and just imaginable enough.” And just important enough to be unmissable."

    New York Times
  • "Powerful and poignant."

    The Sunday Times
  • "Less a memoir than a reflection on life and purpose… A vital book."

    The Economist
